My Spouses laptop is getting a pop up from Avast to "Complete Your Upgrade to Avast 2015"  It is offering:  New GUI; New Browser Plug Ins; New Rescue Disk; and New Clean Up PC Optimizer.  The only choices offered are "Continue".  I just want the Free Antivirus.  If I select "continue" will I be able to deselect these additional services from Avast or should I accept these "New" services from Avast? 

 

Thanks!!!

The easiest way around this would be to download and install a fresh copy over the top and then only select what you want

Download the correct version of Avast to your desktop
Avast Free

Select Custom install
Remove the ticks from the first page for the following unless you want them :

Dropbox
Chrome
Chrome toolbar


Select Next
Deselect the following from the middle column as you will not need them :

SecureLine
Cleanup
Rescue Disc


Select Continue and allow the programme to install

Once installed
Go to Settings > General
Place a tick in "Scan for Potentially Unwanted Programmes (PUP's) "
Place a tick in "Silent /Gaming mode"
